In December 2016 the last child in the medical and social care residential institution St. Sofia in Sofia left the institution for a new life in a family. In August 2020, the former institution was replaced by a modern Complex for Early Childhood Development. This transformation, dreamed of and accomplished by For Our Children Foundation is at the heart of our mission to help children grow in a nurturing family environment. In 2019, as a result of our work, 342 children were saved from separation with their biological families and 635 parents received support to improve their parenting skills.
Since the end 2019, The Human Safety Net (THSN) and Generali Bulgaria are supporting another transformation we have dreamed of – the development of holistic services for children aged 0-7 that stimulate the physical, mental and social development of the child. This transformation is already taking place in the Complex for Early Childhood Development in Sofia and will be implemented in a second ECD Complex in Plovdiv soon. The project Open the Way to Early Childhood Development in Bulgaria (2020-2021) is THSN’s and Generali Bulgaria’s investment in the capacity of our organization to design and deliver top-quality services for families and children. Our psychologists, early childhood specialists, early intervention specialists, social workers, rehabilitators, and family consultants will serve at least 1300 parents and 706 children for each year of the project. We are privileged to partner with Generali Bulgaria in fostering corporate social responsibility for the benefit of children and families.
